In the same way that the mysterious world of Tarogramma has long existed parallel to our own, so too does the realm of cryptocurrencies and NFTs exist alongside our traditional understanding of finance. Just as the elusive land of Tarogramma has sparked the imagination of explorers and writers with its rich culture and profound mysteries, the domain of NFTs has intrigued the minds of artists and investors alike, promising a new frontier in the art market. On the 29th of May, the fusion of these parallel worlds takes place as Damien Cifelli, a London-based multidisciplinary artist, brings his exploration of Tarogramma to the Crypto.com NFT marketplace1.
Damien Cifelli and the World of Tarogramma
Cifelli, an artist and writer from Edinburgh, has built an elaborate culture for Tarogramma, a mythical land that has captured the curiosity of many. His art depicts the lives and customs of the people of Tarogramma, creating a detailed aesthetic and way of living. It’s a world that is alien and eerily similar to ours. Now, this world will have a new home on the blockchain, preserved as unique tokens, as NFTs1.
The Intersection of Art and Blockchain
With the advent of blockchain technology, artists now have the opportunity to tokenize their work, creating unique digital assets known as NFTs. Each NFT represents a piece of art on the blockchain, providing proof of ownership and authenticity. This technological breakthrough has redefined the boundaries of art and commerce, much like how Tarogramma has redefined our understanding of civilization1.
Crypto.com NFT: A Haven for Digital Art Collectors
Crypto.com’s NFT marketplace has rapidly grown in popularity since it was founded in 2021. With over 10 million users across its ecosystem, the platform supports NFTs from four different blockchains and offers multiple payment methods, including cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum, as well as traditional debit and credit cards2.
Navigating the World of NFTs with Crypto.com
Crypto.com offers a secure platform for both artists and collectors. For creators like Cifelli, it provides a space to mint new NFTs on the Crypto.org Chain. For collectors, it offers a diverse range of NFTs from safe listed collections, minimizing the risk of encountering scams or fraudulent digital assets. Although minting a new NFT takes a minimum of 72 hours, there are no fees for minting, making it a good trade-off for artists. Moreover, the platform does not charge gas fees for transactions made using the Crypto.com App, making it a convenient option for collectors.
